Dan Duffy Orchestra

The Dan Duffy Orchestra is an exciting new group from Mankato, Minnesota performing swing and Hot Club music from the 20’s on up to today. A large part of their repertoire consists of original tunes which blend in nicely with their style. The group consists of Paul Horrisberger on acoustic bass who has an extensive history playing bluegrass with Dick Kimmel and others. Fiddle player Marti Ryan teaches at MSU and in her busy schedule performs with the Mankato Symphony. On tenor and soprano saxophone is Frank Cesario who for many years has worked with Big Band jazz groups. Hanna Cesario who plays ukulele is super-talented young jazz singer. Dan Edw. Duffy has been playing blues and rock since the 60’s with groups like City Mouse, Mary Jane Alm and Mankato’s own Gestures of “Run, Run, Run” fame. The melding of all these styles and influences creates an exciting and fun listening and dancing experience.
